Finally, Rock The World is back again! For all I thought, KAMI The Concert at Bukit Jalil was the killer concert this year, but Rock The World 8 is just around the corner, just one month away!

    Hey! I was just browsing around for gigs on facebook, and I noticed a ‘livesounds music series’ event. A whole load of indonesian acts are coming down from the 5th – 27 dec! Think Marcell, Sheila on 7 and The Rock :) I’m so excited!! anyone going?

    This event should not have been permitted in that location.

    There is no way of containing the noise from the venue. As a result, for hours, residents all around were unable to watch TV, listen to hi fi or even hold a dinner conversation as the sound blasted from the venue and reverberated around the residential blocks in the Bukit Ceylon and surrounding areas.

    Don’t get me wrong: it is a laudable objective to provide a showcase for local talent, but it must not take place at such volume in a residential area.

    There are plenty of alternative venues.

    And in any case, the volume was such that it would have been a health hazard to those attending the event. Once the live music ended, the recorded music event that went on until 3 am was, although audible around the district through closed and sealed windows, at least not painfully loud. The live music started at 5pm with a shriek from a presenter and obliterated all chance of a peaceful evening for residents until after 11 pm.

    It is simply not acceptable for such noise levels. And to emphasise how loud it was, when the audience cheered the end of the event, even with windows open, it was barely audible. Surely the crowd should be louder than the bands?

    It must not be allowed to happen again.
